Pots and Pans Rack - A Quickie

I was in the middle of making a 1×2 cube storage when my wife popped into the shop and asked if I could make a quick rack to hang pots and pans. I looked around the shop to see what I had available. I found a piece of red oak left over from another project. It was already cut to the length I wanted and sanded! I also had some Shaker Pegs for a not yet completed towel rack. The heads of the pegs were too big to fit through the pan handles so I had to cut them.

I cut the heads off on the band saw. I have some 60 grit sandpaper glued to a short 2×2 that I use like a rasp on many projects. That made quick work of evening up the band saw cuts. A quick smoothing with some 120 grit and they were ready.

I marked out the hole locations and drilled them with a 1/2” Forstner bit on the drill press. I cut the back side at a 10° angle so the pegs would angle up slightly. (As it turns out, the wall was already angled a few degrees so the pegs are angled slightly more than I intended but it works just fine.)

A little glue on each peg and I drove them home with a dead blow mallet. Finish was not important, my wife wanted to use this immediately, but I just couldn’t bring myself to hang a raw wood project in my kitchen. I applied one heavy coat of Golden Oak Watco Danish Oil and wiped it dry with a shop towel.

The pictures were taken less than 1 hour after I started the project.

Nice job. Is the wife happy?
Looks good to me, always nice to free up cabinet space.

The wife is very happy. It was nice to crank out a quick project so she knows that not everything takes weeks to complete. LOL

Or in my case years… she is still waiting for a display case… oh well you can’t rush these things… but some little jobs done straight away do keep her happy…
A very useful addition to the kitchen.
